In 2007, tensions between China, Japan, North and South Korea, and even the United States threaten to ignite all-out war. The root of this crisis is Japan's creation of a branch of its military that most of its neighbors view as a threat to regional peace. However, an inside group is also contributing to this crisis, and Special Agent Sam Fisher of Third Echelon is sent to the region to defuse the crisis and find out who is behind it. Written by Sam

Did You Know?


Because the game depicts a war between North and South Korea, South Korea, which as of 2011 is still officially, but not actually, in a state of war with its northern neighbor, banned the game to avoid tensions with North Korea. However, this ban was lifted in 2007, and also applied to some other games that depicts a war between the two Koreas. See more »


In the mission 'Hokkaido', Redding mentions to Fisher that Milan Nedich's real name is 'Milos Nowak' and is a wanted war criminal from the Bosnian war. Because in the Bosnian alphabet there is no 'w', it should be 'Novak' instead. Nowak is actually the Polish version of that surname. See more »


Irving Lambert: [Sam reaches a crash site] Fisher, that plane is way too damaged for you to retrieve that information, but we can't let it fall into North Korean hands. NKA recovery teams are already inbound. Call an air strike on the area.
Sam Fisher: And leave those pilots to die?
Irving Lambert: You have your orders. Call the air strike. That building will be a perfect vantage point.
[Sam picks one up]
Irving Lambert: Fisher, I told you to leave them and call the air strike!
Sam Fisher: Yeah, well, you gave me my orders, and I'll follow them, once I get the pilots...

not bad but worst out the series
29 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I go this game and it is alright I guess. I just expected a bit more. The main problem with this is that the hacking is extremely hard, even if you read the instructions you can't get it. Also the graphics aren't as good as Pandora Tomorrow and Double Agent. This game could do with some improvements, it says that if guards are waling in water and you shoot a sticky shocker in the water the guard will fry up but nothing happens. In my opinion this is the worst out of the three. I haven't played the first one but have played Pandora Tomorrow, this and Double agent. This game deserves a 4/10 though. Could do with some improvements.
